    Are we far enough along to evaluate Yancy McKnight?

    I haven't been too impressed. Our team is plagued with injuries and seem to be less physical than every squad we play.

    Physicality is as much coaching as training.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Are we far enough along to evaluate Yancy McKnight?

    I think we start games too slow and need more on field passion. We are more like troops going to work than sellout players. These three and outs at the start are killing the passion of the game. The defense eventually breaks down and the game starts to slip away. We really need to come out playing hard on the first play from now on. Perhaps this is a reflection of team leadership, perhaps not. We need Leonard Johnson and Sims type passion. Even CPR looks too calm at the start.

    I would bet 1% of the folks on this board are remotely qualified to have an opinion about this. I know I sure as hell have no way to know if he's doing a good job or not.

    Offensive production, defensive lapses, et al, sure you can see the end result and assess a lot to the coaching. But strength training? Injuries can't be a good measurement of that. I have no idea what would be.

    I can assure you Yancy McKnight is not the problem. He's probably the furthest thing from the problem

    Re: Are we far enough along to evaluate Yancy McKnight?

    Yancy is not the problem, the problem is we are having to play waaaayyy too many underclassmen when they aren't physically or mentally ready to play. And this leads to injury and a 1-6 season.

    Yea, but it pales in comparison to the bigger schools.

    Olinemen that have been in Yancy's program their entire college career getting destroyed by UNI's Dline. Furthest thing from the problem? Sure, right, whatever.

    Yeah Yancy sucks b/c a team of fr and so are getting hurt and haven't bulked up. He should for sure be fired.

    I would evaluate a S&C coach based how how tough physically the players are. We have been abused up front by guys half our players weight, telling me pound for pound even UNI has stronger men, physically, up front.
